Aditya Birla Hospital spends Rs 3 crore annually under Indigent Patient Fund (IPF)

Pimpri – Aditya Birla Memorial Hospital today addressed the press with all the factual details related to Patient Dashrath Shivaji Arde. CEO Ms. Rekha Dubey, narrated the entire incident from admission till the patient was taken away from hospital.

Earlier based on complaint from Arde’s family, Wakad police station has registered FIR Dubey and other members of the hospital.

 “Arde’s son is working with a private company with Provident Fund and covered under Employee State Insurance Corporation (ESIC). His dependents are also covered under the scheme. Hence, they are under below poverty line group.  The agitation by Mr.Ajij Shaikh (so called social worker),  Mr.Sagar Dashrath Arde and few more persons are totally baseless.  Subsequently, FIR filed against us is also not true.  In fact Mr. Ajij Shaikh and Mr.Sagar Dashrath Arde played dishonestly and acted surreptitiously against our Hospital Management for getting free treatment. This is amounting to representation of false facts, cheating and fraud.  The entire agitation demonstrated by them (so called social workers) was totally unwarranted and has caused damage to the reputation of the hospital as well as individual hospital management executives. The complaint was filled with a malafied intention to malign the reputation of the hospital”, Dubey said.
